NetID: Most applications are now using the Rutgers NetID for authentication. If you have a NetID and do not remember what it is you may look it up using the NetID Lookup application. If you do not yet have a NetID you may create an account and NetID.
Along with the NetID, you will receive an account with access to email, web hosting and more.

An easy way to use Rutgers email is the webmail system.
